The only reason I knew I'd been nominated was from checking out my MapStats and seeing where people were coming from and it was the site of these awards. In the midst of all that's been going on with me personally over the last few weeks I totally forgot about the awards. This afternoon when I got home from work I noticed I'd had a visitor who linked from the same site so I went to check it out.
Lo and behold, voting has finished and konagod was 1st runner up in the Best LGBT category. Dang. Maybe I could have won this thing if I'd been aggressively promoting it. Doesn't matter; the fact that I am 1st runner up without even participating is honorable. I don't even want to know how many people voted overall, but I hope it was more than 15 or 20! It might deflate the near-victory.
OK, I cheated. I looked and it was 29. I'm still pleased. Other categories had way more votes cast. Maybe that crowd just isn't into LGBT blogs as much. I found some amusement in their "Best Sex Blog."
Since when did "porn" become a bleeped word and "hotbox" isn't? Hmmmmm, what is that 1st runner up? Metaphysical Pissy? There's only one other vowel I can think of that fits, and we'll be seeing that right here on Friday.
